    I love this thread! Great work. Curious: does this car have the trans with the "backward" shift pattern?

    Thank you Ed -

    This car has the normal shift pattern.....

    I always wondered - what designated if you got the "backward" shift pattern?

    My good friend has a Boano and it is backwards as we would know it.

    I drove a freinds Boano years ago with a backwards transmission. I thought it was unique to that car. Was it common for that model?

    I was curious only because I had 2 Boanos, and both had the reverse pattern. Never understood the logic.

    Another update to stuff - never ends!

    Previous pictures show the steering column installed - that was just for a quick test fit, alignment and bearing placement analysis.

    I removed the steering column and installed a new steering bearing, installed the horn contact brass surround and installed the horn contact button. On the horn button, i had upper mounting piece usually made of rubber insulator made from delron so that i can permanently place the horn button in position. Over time with the rubber piece, the button would/could slip downtime shaft and not make contact as required for the grounding. The Delron piece fixes this permanently and should resolve the potential issue.

    Lastly in installed turn signal cancel thingie......the little bumps on the ring flip the turn signal switch back to center position.
    Pretty basic operation. Lastly the horn contact at the brass surround, mounts under the dash and rubs the surround as the wheel turns. I had to make a new brass contact, restored the pieces and now ready for install as well.

    Ed, I wonder if you've had the presence of mind to log your hours. I wished I had.
